Skip to comments.Wall Streetís nightmare: President Elizabeth Warren
Posted on 11/12/2013 8:45:35 AM PST by SeekAndFind
NEW YORK There are three words that strike terror in the hearts of Wall Street bankers and corporate executives across the land: President Elizabeth Warren.
The anxiety over Warren grew Monday after a magazine report suggested the bank-bashing Democratic senator from Massachusetts could mount a presidential bid in 2016 and would not necessarily defer to Hillary Clinton who is viewed as far more business-friendly for the partys nomination.
And the fear is not only that Warren, who channels an increasingly popular strain of Occupy Wall Street-style anti-corporatism, might win. That is viewed by many political analysts as a slim possibility. It is also that a Warren candidacy, and even the threat of one, would push Clinton to the left in the primaries and revive arguments about breaking up the nations largest banks, raising taxes on the wealthy and otherwise stoking populist anger that is likely to also play a big role in the Republican primaries.
The nightmare scenario for banks is to hear these arguments from a candidate on the far left and on the far right, said Jaret Seiberg, a financial services industry analyst at Guggenheim Partners. Suddenly you have Elizabeth Warren screaming about too big to fail on one side and Rand Paul screaming about it on the other side and then candidates in the middle are forced to weigh in.

1) First Woman President in America.
2) First "American Indian" (NOTE THE QUOTES) President ( Call her president Fauxcahontas ).
If George Soros wants President Fauxahontas, that’s what he will buy.
Who is behind this sudden push for Warren? The idiot hasn’t been in office for one year, and has accomplished nothing.
First, she can’t carry a single state in the south, which limits the options here.
Second, for speech-ability, she’s a third-rank amatueur compared to President Obama.
Third, her list of accomplishments....lend herself to being a College President, not a national President.
Whoever intends to forward her as the prime runner in 2016...is mostly a humorous individual who just wants to stir the pot. I can just see the comedians at work now....with a five-star target for comedy, with her whole history.
RE: Third, her list of accomplishments....lend herself to being a College President
Of which college?
Running against her will be a gift to the Republicans from the giant bear god, who danced with the moon then lay down to sleep and became a mountain in the time of the long waters.
BS. Wall Street loves market-share protection. Occupy Wall Street was brought to us by Deutschebank, after all. Main Street will die, but Wall Street will do just as well as BMW did under Hitler.
Get ready for nonstop chatter about “equal pay,” “choice” and “gay rights.” Those terms will be associated with drinking games. The left will be happy when the only white males standings are learning-challenged union thugs and homosexuals.
The hard-left internet wackos. Nobody of substance. Yet.
The bottom line is the ruling class will put in there whomever they agree upon.
Unless We the People decide otherwise.
from the article-
“She almost certainly would bring fresh scrutiny to Wall Street scandals by arguing that even giant settlements like the $13 billion JPMorganChase is expected to pay to end probes into its mortgage practices are nowhere near enough to make up for the damage done during the financial crisis.”
Pari passu, what is obligation democrats should pay for the damage done to health care system?
Who counts the votes?
I don’t get where this bitch is getting any support.
Is she the next Obama...coming out of nowhere with a sketchy past to finish destroying this great republic?
The Warren for Senate campaign got a LOT of its money from Wall Street bankers.
If the media didn’t have its heads planted so far up the liberal’s establishment’s ass, they’d be vetted that.
I think it was the late George Carlin that said that on the first day on the job, every new president is invited into the Whitehouse theater by a group of Wall Street power brokers, where they are shown a video of the Kennedy Assassination from an angle the public hasn't seen before... then they are told what their agenda will be for the next term....
She lied about her minority status for years to get ahead in her career which would have disqualified her almost anyplace but Marxachusetts. Why would anyone think she has a chance at the Presidency? Just her practicing law without a license should be enough to disqualify her. Whatever...she still has a better chance than Hillary.
If anyone would go on a nationalization of banking and industry spree, it would probably be someone like Elizabeth Warren. Think of the shah of iran, and his reign of rule and plunder, and you get the idea. Nobody, including their property, wealth, or life would be safe.
my error: despise (not despite)
You make me laugh :)
I think this is a stalking horse in the form of an even more liberal to make Hillary look more reasonable in comparison. Whatever it is it shows it is never enough. Liberals are emboldened by Obama and will run more and more extreme candidates. Open CPUSA candidates is where this is going.
Wow - the Politico’s taking my posts down as fast as I’m posting them. :)
At this point, Warren is a stalking goat. Designed to give the appearance of actual competition instead of just a media anointment of Hillary.
She has zero shot at even being nominated, she knows it, the Democratic party knows it, you know it.
They love her over at DU.
They'd rather have Warren than Hillary.
Warren is all about crashing US business and banks. The socialists love that.
“.. Elizabeth Warren screaming about too big to fail on one side and Rand Paul screaming about it on the other side...”
Two liberals screaming about the same thing?
Oh dude. I’d love to see. Primary between her and the Hildebeest
Bring on the popcorn eating dude!
You didn’t build that!
I saved Libya !
RE: You didnt build that!
Was that Fauxcahontas’ line that Obama stole?
This woman is such a flake it’s hard to believe that even the Dems would consider her. But she won handily in MA, even after all her lies and lunatic utterances were exposed, so it’s not unlikely that they’d run her and not even unlikely that she’d win, since Dems have now engineered themselves a permanent majority and corrupted the system so badly that there’s no way a GOPer is going to win again under current conditions.
Hillary is yesterday’s Marxist hag. Warren is going to be the one.
RE: But she won handily in MA, even after all her lies and lunatic utterances were exposed
MA is the state that continued to put Ted Kennedy in the Senate EVEN after he caused the death of Mary Jo Kopechne.
This is also the same state that time and again, put Barney Frank in congress LONG after they discovered that he was running a gay brothel in his apartment.
It seems that lying and perversion are personal assets in this state.
So who does this remind you of, hmm?
Remember how that worked out in 2008? Lose-lose, either way.
Wall Street is going to be afraid of a money-grubbing liar? Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!
Old liz has has the phony American Indian heritage vote locked up.
They should be afraid of the populism that’s sweeping the electorate in general and the Democrat Party in particular. Not so much of the Fake Indian per-se.
I’m calling Bullsh!t.
Wall Street would do just fine under President Elizabeth Warren, just as they are making record profits under President Barack Obama.
All of the anti-Wall Street rhetoric is just playing to the mob. The real action is in using the power of the state to arrange lucrative deals for the cronies. This highly profitable trade will continue, and probably be expanded, under President Elizabeth Warren.
President Elizabeth Warren. PEW. Nope, that won’t work.
That seems to be the case.
I always laugh when the GOP says somebody has “baggage” (referring to the fact that the Dems didn’t like him or that maybe he had a divorce) and uses that as an excuse for not running a conservative candidate - when the Dems practically make a badge of honor out of lying, being caught by the press, lying again, going on to steal, cheat and manipulate, sexually harassing anybody within reach, getting caught, going on again...well, you get the idea.
The GOP has got to get over the fact that somebody like Newt Gingrich was...gasp! divorced twice and that - gasp! - the Dems and the press hated him.
We want honesty and decency and conservative ideas from our candidates, period. Dems have none, but we don’t want to sink to that level. However, we’ve got to stop letting a bizarrely 19th century vision of moral perfection (of course, manipulated through Dem trolls) shoot down good candidates.
Most Evangelicals (and, sadly, a lot of Catholics) have been divorced, and among my Evangelical friends, they always talk about the “third time’s charm,” that is, the third marriage is the best one. Sometimes they luck out on the second one, too...
But the religious voting bloc goes out and kills any candidate who has been married more than once, while the GOP-e goes out and kills anyone who has actually made him or herself unpopular by insisting on a conservative position.
Yes, and Warren will run so far left, the media will point to Hillary and say look! She’s moderate.

I don’t find Warren any more or less frightening than Obama. It’s the continuance of socialist “progress” that would doom America, whether under Hillary, Warren, or Christie.
Remember on the TV show House there was a character her referred to as the “Condescending Bitch.” The writers were thinking of Elizabeth Warren when they came up with that name.
Listening to her talk feels like being tied down and have a group of Newton Soccer Mom;s explain why they cannot have sex any more.
It is just horrible.
